Fantasy: If at first you don't succeed

First, I would like to thank everyone who competed in yesterday's FanDuel Grand Slam Event. It was a huge success and also helped heal my ego that had been damaged by a horrendous fantasy hoops season.

I finished in 540th out of the 2,455 people whop entered. While that might not be great, like 'thruthewickets', who finished in both first and second and took home a total of $7,500, it was more than enough to beat most of the people who registered through and qualified for the Beat the Expert bonus.

For those of you who finished ahead of me, congratulations. You should receive you $10 bonus in the next 24-48 hours.

For those of you who didn't, don't despair. There will be plenty of time this season for you to beat me. I'll keep you all posted on when the next contest will be. In the mean time, you can get some practice in by playing head-to-head.

Here is a look at my roster and the winning roster:
